It was discovered Tuesday that "Street Fighter IV" producer, Yoshinori Ono, has an unannounced game in development for the PlayStation 4.

Originally discovered on the gaming forum NeoGAF (and later reported by Dualshockers), Yoshinori Ono's LinkedIn profile was recently updated to include a new project he has in the works. Above his known work on "Ultra Street Fighter IV" and "Deep Down," Ono is credited as producer for an unnamed PS4 game set at a vague release date of 201X. Unfortunately, that's all the information available right now for the mysterious PS4 game Ono is presumably producing for Capcom. However, according to Dualshockers, Ono traveled to Honk Kong and China as research for an unnamed "next title." During his trip, Ono was accompanied by the Sony Computer Entertainment staff.

Considering Ono and the developers at Capcom are still hard at work on the free-to-play PS4 exclusive, "Deep Down," it may be a while before we officially hear what the unannounced PS4 game is. Although, there's always a possibility a clue could be given for this year's Tokyo Game Show.

Yesterday, Ono resigned from his position as director of Capcom Vancouver. Via Twitter, Ono explained his reason for stepping down. "I resigned from the director position about CAPCOM Vancouver. Thanks good staff of CAPCOM Vancouver, and Dead Rising staff!," Ono said. As some mistook Ono's resignation from Capcom Vancouver as a resignation from Capcom itself, Ono took to Twitter again to clarify his earlier statement. "My position within Capcom has not changed and I'm still involved in all of the projects that I'm currently working on. Only my role for Capcom Vancouver has ended."

Capcom Vancouver, formerly called Blue Castle Games, is the developer best known for "Dead Rising 2," Dead Rising 3," and the recently released Capcom-themed DLC' "Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha."
